Some presents for artists are specific and should be bought with one person in mind. This Art Bin tote is this kind of a present. Each unit is crafted to perfection and can hold paints and other medium-sized items. There is a thick shoulder strap to make carrying the bag somewhat easier. If the tote gets heavy, transporting it is still very easy as there are wheels on it. It’s just like a suitcase on wheels, only it’s specifically for artists. There are two compartments to help increase the carrying capacity, but these can easily combine into one bag and be buckled up.
